I’m sorry but I just can’t deal with nail polishes that set my teeth on edge.
Orly Black Pixel nail polish. I just don’t know whether to top-coat it or paint some white lines down the middle and drive my car over it. I mean, look at it, that’s not nailed polish. That’s… that’s… asphalt.
Of course, I should make it quite clear that my personal hatred for textured nail polishes bears no relation to the performance abilities of this one from Orly. It’s only fair to lay bare my prejudices and leave you under no illusions about the fact that I’d still hate this polish had it been hand-delivered by Robert Downey, Jr. himself.
Painted over a nail wheel stick thingy, it took three-coats to achieve a full-textured opacity and drying time between coats was pretty good. I’d imagine that the thickness of the polish and the obvious lack of top coat would mean that overall drying time is pretty slow though.
Honestly, most nail polish “trends” leave me cold and this one doesn’t change my opinion. Call me a bore but I’m a bit of a puritan when it comes to polish.
Having said that, you should totes be aware that Orly Black Pixel Nail Polish is currently on offer at graftonsbeauty.co.uk, priced at only £5.40 for 18ml
